"Hurtling toward the future"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Worthwhile place to work when it knew what its business was. After selling off almost anything that customers would recognize as "Kodak," it's unclear what its future will be.

Cons

Out of touch management, though the new CEO may well clean house. Archaic internal systems, lack of succession planning and true employee development. Senior people are leaving and the solution appears to be: hire interns.

Advice to Management

Be prepared to tell the New Kodak story in 30 seconds or less. Ditch the powerpoints. Be authentic. If you don't have a great storyteller on your team, hire a skilled P-R and media relations person who can teach your team to tell that story to your customers.

    Pros

    Until 2012, it was a great place to work. Great people: committed, dedicated. Very team focused, even when resources were sparse.

    Cons

    Everything after October 2012. Innovation failed. Leadership pushed product to market long before it was ready. This destroyed any credibility left in the brand, and customers fled.

    Advice to Management

    Just leave, please.
